Ask your friendly neighborhood guardian to leave a Handcuffed enemy for you, so trish can engage it and use her ability all day.
After you discover 1 or more clues at a location with an enemy: Either discover 1 additional clue at that location, or automatically evade that enemy. (Limit once per round.)
effect: +2. If this is an investigation, you may choose any revealed location; you are now investigating as if you were at that location instead.
Trish Scarborough - Back
Deck Size: 30.

Trish Scarborough is a green/yellow investigator and is equally good at both. Her ability is the best evasion ability in the game. No other character can exhaust an elder God with two bucks and zero actions by working a hunch. (She also gets a clue.)
And when she gets a few XP, money and clues pour from the sky. Lockpicks and Gregory means you’re starting at a +8 to get clues. If you have Lola Santiago too, you start at a +10. Plus, Lola’s fast ability means that if you have resources equal to the shroud location of where you are, You don’t have to worry about enemies spawning on you during the encounter phase. Your guardians will love you.
Her signature weakness is something your allies can deal with, or you can just see it as a two health speedbump. If you have Obfuscation, for two bucks and zero actions you can avoid even that consequence.
And if you want to play guardian angel, you can use “In the know” to leave enemies tapped all across the map.
Two willpower won’t get you far. Hopefully other people are there to deal with such petty trivialities as the encounter deck. If not, do yourself a favor and grab Quick Study. It’s always nice to have a few clues scattered around, anyway.
